Thanks to birder John Vooys who first spotted the birds, I and others were able to photograph two Mountain Bluebirds at the above location Thursday. How long they will hang around no one knows.
According to what I have read, Mountain bluebirds are quite common in the Spring (I have never seen them in the Fraser Valley) but are uncommon at this time of year. Anyway it was great to get these shots in and get some fresh air at the same time.
|Mountain Bluebird (Sialia currucoides) Female?|
|The out of focus cranberry fields behind set off the colours of this beautiful bird.|
|The other bird is either a juvenile or female. Any takers?|
